I ran out of laundry detergent yesterday, so whipped up this batch this morning. It took me under 5 minutes, and I don’t even know how much it cost, because it cost so little – and best part, it is 100% zero waste! This recipe can also be easily doubled, tripled, halved, etc.
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 1 cup of borax
- 1 bar of soap – grated
- 10-20 drops of essential oil of your choice (optional)
- Combine all ingredients and mix very well.
- Store in a glass jar (with essential oils, it is best to store them in glass, not plastic)
- Use ~1 tbsp per load of laundry
And there you have it – a cheap, easy, zero waste laundry detergent!
Happy washing clothes 🙂
